I am so excited to go to Slovakia next month. We connected with missionary John Bean last year, and he is seeing a great turning to God among the Roma/gypsies in this nation (and in the rest of Europe also). It turns out that the missions trip we have set up with him will be only about 25 miles away from Poprad, the city my grandfather left in 1907 to come to America. I will be visiting the Slovak church also.
This will be a sort of "experiencing my roots" trip!
